Featuring: Eimear McBride, moderated by Bridget Riley
Event Code: IQ18
A Girl is a Half-formed Thing – Liverpool-born Irish writer Eimear McBride’s first book – is a sensation, a stream-of-consciousness narrative written in disjointed language from the perspective of a young girl growing up with her cancer-stricken brother. It was named Best Book of the Year by a host of publications, including The New York Times Book Review, NPR, New York Magazine, Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, and more. The New Yorker called it a “blazingly original novel... fueled by fractured, adventurous language and raw emotion.” One of the people currently working on a Chinese translation of this book, Liu Yan, will be at this talk to briefly discuss the process of translating such a challenging and profound novel.
This event will be held at iQiyi, an official festival venue located next to The Bookworm.
